Message to government. Set out the many wins from Brexit. Use our new freedoms well. Get us out without surrendering our fish, our borders, our laws. We voted to be independent. Once free we can do better.

I asked Government yesterday to promote home grown food.There are big opportunities as we put in a replacement for the EU policies which have cut our capacity to feed ourselves. The Minister agreed but needs to bring in the schemes to cut those food miles.

Why are the EU criticising the U.K. for getting on with regulating the vaccine? They need to get used to us making our own decisions. If the EU has a problem with this product they should share it with the world.

Is a Scotch egg a substantial meal? The government’s latest law is unclear. How can you enforce a law if Ministers cannot tell you what it means?

Tax cuts work. The Stamp duty cut has given a big boost to people buying the home they want. Let’s have some more tax cuts to get more people back to work.

Livelihoods matter.The government needs to do more to help the hospitality industry. Where is the promised work on air extraction and other ways of making indoors safer? Where is the extra financial help for small businesses?

Why not open and staff all the Nightingale hospital capacity they need for CV 19 cases and get the rest of the NHS back to full capacity for everything else? No need to scare us with the idea the NHS will not cope.

The UK should be setting out great plans to expand our fishing fleet and increase our food processing industries as we take back control of our seas. Read how on

Why has Mr Barnier come to London to insult us with an offer of a tiny part of our own fish back? He wants us to stay tied to single market rules and tariffs, locked into a new legal nightmare. We voted to leave the single market and to be free.

We do not want to surrender our fish, our laws and our courts to the EU. If the EU still wants us to compromise on these there should be no more talks.

The Prime Minister promised us we could just leave the EU if there was no deal by October 15th. Time to deliver the promise.

When is the Chancellor going to take up the wins from Brexit? We want VAT off essential products. We need a farm subsidy scheme that promotes more U.K. grown and reared food. We want a fund to expand our fishing fleet and help our fish processing industry. Let’s get on with it.

Mr Barnier threatens to end the talks as the UK hasn't caved in. It's good news as we must be sticking to the truth there is no need to give away our fish, our right to make our own laws and control our own borders just so Germany can sell us cars tariff free. Your move EU.

Today we need a big stimulus to get us out of the big recession. We also need measures to get value for all the money being spent. Growth is the priority to get the deficit down. It is important not to waste the stimulus money.

Good job the Bank of England has created an extra £450 billion of money to cut the cost of state debt. The Bank buys the state debt and the state owns the Bank. We now need a plan for economic recovery to cut the deficit as this should be a one off for the lockdowns.

Project Fear never gives up over Brexit. If they are so concerned about the UK car industry why have they been so quiet over the collapse of petrol and diesel car sales this year? It took place whilst we were still in the single market and customs union.

Talk today of review clauses in the EU Agreement in future years. We don’t want a bad agreement with never ending talks and the hope of improvement years later. We voted to leave, not for an Agreement. Take back control. Reject any EU proposal to keep us as a colony.

Instead of thinking up more complex rules for everyone government should spell out the risks of the virus and trust people to make more of their own decisions. Help those who want protection .Let others rescue the economy and get on with their lives, judging safety themselves.

We need more than a few days of permitted contact over Christmas. We need a plan to protect the vulnerable who want help, improve our health care and restore our freedoms. We need to rescue many jobs and businesses on the edge of loss from lock down.

This week we need a bold plan for prosperity and growth. More tax rises and 600 pages of possible legal text from the EU would damage us more and hold us back. Let's cut taxes and invest in a great independent future.
